I genuinely appreciate this opportunity to express my love for tennis. One of the main reasons I enjoy the sport so much is because when I actually tried to play, it was unbelievably difficult. So ever since, Iâ€™ve been drawn to the great talents of the game. Not to mention Andre Agassi was like a pop star when I was a kid. I love the Williams sisters. I simply adore Maria Sharadova and Iâ€™m a huge [Rafael] Nadal fan! Iâ€™m definitely rooting for him to get the Grand slam and win the US Open. Heâ€™s already became [sic] the 2nd youngest player to win 8 major titles before the age of 25. Heâ€™s halfway there to Roger [Federer’s] 16. And even while battling knee tendonitis, heâ€™s still ranked #1. His Wimbledon performance was one of a kind. He simply plays with pure passion and leaves it all out there on the court. With [Juan MartÃn] Del Potro pulling out of this years Open with injury, Nadalâ€™s only threats are obviously Federer, Djokovic, and Roddickâ€™s aggressive play, but the player that scares me the most is Andy Murray whoâ€™s beaten Rafael four times. Even still I say â€œNadal wins it all.â€
And by the way, Iâ€™m giving the edge to [Kim] Clijsters in the Womenâ€™s singles due to Serenaâ€™s right foot. Again, Iâ€™m very thankful for this opportunity.
